Post subject: essential oils in shower gels
hi everyone, this may seem a strange question but im 6 wks pregnant and have been using a palmolive shower gel with the essential oils of rose, jasmine and orchid in it and thought nothing of it, however ive been reading everywhere now that essential oils can be harmful to your baby and they are to be avoided. has anyone else used this sort of shower gel and stopped, or carried on or know of anyone whos experianced problems because of it?
